Grizzlies Are Ecosystems’ Best Friends

They help keep forests healthy by dispersing seeds and berries, and they are expert diggers who aerate soils to facilitate wildflower growth. They also protect riparian areas and prevent encroachment of conifers on alpine meadows.

While grizzly populations have expanded over the past several decades, they remain limited in number and range in much of North America. This is because grizzlies, like many other wild animals, can be easily deterred from habitat that they need to thrive in the wild by development pressures and community opposition.

When grizzlies are removed from their traditional lands, they lose a large part of their ecosystem’s diversity and can be difficult to bring back. It takes years to reestablish the connections and relationships between grizzly bears and the places they eat, rest and play.

But if you ask conservationists and other wildlife biologists, they’ll tell you that the key to successful grizzly recovery lies in the ability of communities and land managers to provide opportunities for grizzlies to thrive in their natural environment. That’s why a lot of effort is being devoted to helping bears reclaim their historical range and bringing them home where they belong — not to mention reducing the risk that they will be removed in the first place.

That’s the approach being used in the Northern Cascades, where federal officials are conducting a grizzly recovery study. If a recovery program is approved, it could lead to the reintroduction of grizzlies into the North Cascades Ecosystem for the first time in four decades.

The North Cascades is a popular destination for outdoor recreation and many people are curious about the possibility of reintroducing bears to this region. It is a place that has long been part of the state’s heritage, with its vast forests and rugged mountains.

For that reason, it is an important area to study. In fact, it has become a hot spot for researchers and activists.

There is a wide range of research being done in the region, from tracking grizzlies through aerial surveys to documenting their behavior on islands. McLellan, for example, has spent a significant amount of time studying grizzly colonization of islands along the central coast of British Columbia. She says she has observed young male grizzlies test boundaries in their search for a new territory.

And, she’s found that the grizzlies that make it to these islands are more likely to be young males than females. In some cases, she’s found that they’ve arrived too far from the mainland to reach females that are ready to mate.

McLellan, a professor at Washington State University, is an expert in the grizzly bear ecology of Vancouver Island. He’s a member of the bear specialist group for the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and has been studying grizzlies in the region for more than 30 years.
